Ballyshannon is set to benefit from funding allocated to Rockfield Community Co-Op Ltd for the construction of a community centre.
The Minister for the Environment, Community and Local Government, Phil Hogan sanctioned Donegal Local Development Company to approve funding of just under two hundred thousand euro for the project.
The facility will provide amenities under the basic services for the economy and rural population measure of the Rural Development Programme 2007-2013.
The project will now go back to the Board of Donegal Local Development Company for final approval on the project.
Minister of State for the Gaeltacht, Dinny McGinley says the project will strengthen the social and economic fabric for all the areas inhabitants.
